  • Fri, 30 Sep 2016 06:30:00 +0000: Is Manchester about to become a global digital leader? - Internet | The Guardian

    The most important factor for attracting tech companies to the city is closer links with its universities, says a new report

    From the industrial revolution, to the birth of the computer and the rise of acid house, Manchester has a history of creativity and innovation that is recognised worldwide.

    But does the city have what it takes to become a global digital leader? Sir Howard Bernstein thinks so.

  • Thu, 29 Sep 2016 16:37:55 +0000: Here's my plan to save Twitter: let's buy it | Nathan Schneider - Internet | The Guardian

    Corporate sharks are circling around the platform we love. But there is another way: shared ownership, where the community takes control

    If you ask Wall Street, Twitter is in trouble. The user-base is growing, but not quickly enough. Ad revenue is growing too, but not as quickly as it once did. The only answer to this leveling-out, it seems, is the platform’s acquisition by a bigger corporate bird, which can regurgitate an influx of capital and absorb our tweets into its own data-craving metabolism. Disney, Salesforce, Microsoft, and Google’s parent Alphabet are all circling above Twitter’s wobbly stock price, salivating.

    For lots of us users, it’s a different story. Twitter is pretty great. We reporters rely on its instant access to the chatter of the world more than we like to admit. The running commentary of friends and celebrities has turned horrible presidential debates and State of the Unions into Mystery Science Theater 3000. And the platform nurtures communities fighting for justice; historian Anthea Butler has argued, for instance, that Black Twitter has come to inherit the mantle of the Black Church. It also delivers us frequent access to Donald Trump’s id, if we want.

  • Thu, 29 Sep 2016 16:20:03 +0000: Who should be the next Metropolitan police commissioner? | Duncan Campbell - Internet | The Guardian
    It’s the biggest job in UK policing. Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe’s successor will have to get to grips with terrorism, cybercrime and media relations

    Another day another departure. If it’s not a prime minister, a party leader or a national football manager, it’s a police chief. The news that Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe will be leaving his job as commissioner of the Metropolitan police is just the latest indication that it’s tougher at the top these days than in the gentler times when senior coppers slipped quietly away after a jolly retirement party at Scotland Yard.

    Sir Bernard took on the job five years ago in the wake of the departure, in quick succession, of Ian Blair and Paul Stephenson, the former destabilised by the then mayor, Boris Johnson, the latter in the wake of what was deemed to be a poor police response to the hacking scandals exposed by the Guardian. To that extent he has at least lasted the course and will doubtless soon be able to find himself a comfortable home in the security industry, away from the daily crises that come with his current post.

  • Thu, 29 Sep 2016 16:00:35 +0000: Heavyweight: the podcast that goes back to when people's lives went wrong - Internet | The Guardian

    ‘Moby, it’s been 20 years. Give me back my CDs’ – in this intriguing show, Jonathan Goldstein leads people back to crucial moment in their lives – and then tries to put things right

    In Gimlet’s new podcast, Heavyweight, the affable Jonathan Goldstein makes a promise. And that’s to “mince, wheedle, mealymouth, cajole and backpedal my way into the past like a therapist with a time machine”.

    This is something he’s skilled at, telling stories of ordinary people who have a feeling that life should have taken a different turn somewhere. As the podcast unfolds, he leads his subjects back to that crucial moment when things went wrong and then helps them confront it so they can move on.

  • Thu, 29 Sep 2016 10:41:29 +0000: Amazon's Echo struggles to connect to BT's Home Hub - Internet | The Guardian

    Users take to social media to vent their frustration with their BT Home Hubs and Amazon’s new voice-assistant speaker, which stalled on setup

    Scores of BT broadband users who purchased an Amazon Echo intelligent voice-controlled speaker have run into frustrating setup issues, and vented their anger on social media at both Amazon and BT.

    The Echo was released in the UK on Wednesday, bringing Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant into the home and allowing users to have conversations, ask questions, play music, control lights and other smart home devices, and even listen to the headlines read out from the Guardian.

    FFS, I’m going to bed, this has been hugely disappointing.

    Can't get my #Amazon #Echo to connect to my #BT HomeHub wifi. Seems I'm not alone & was known issue months ago. #fail @AmazonUK @BTCare

    .@amazonecho @alexadevs Amazon Echo onboarding is shonky: unable to connect to my wifi network. How can you expect civilians to set this up?

    @AmazonHelp how do I get by brand new #amazon #Echo to work with #BT Home Hub Infinity 2? Setup process freezes halfway & wont register

    Great start with my @AmazonUK echo then. Can't play music, give me news etc nor connect to my hue bridge, It can tell me the weather though

    To get @AmazonUK Echo to work, I had to separate my @bt_uk 2.4 & 5 GHz Wireless networks, and give Echo the 2.4 by itself. Major hassle!

    Had Echo set up issues with my BT Home Hub 3... this is how I fixed it (thank you various forums!!) #alexa #amazonecho #echo #setup #homehub pic.twitter.com/yVVUQGdWRC
